These schools are similar to Palm Beach Atlantic University in key aspects like size, setting, and academics.
100% of students
When I came to PBA, the first thing I noticed was how welcoming and vibrant the students and faculty were. Everyone cares about you, you are never doing anything alone. The professors are wonderful and are very invested in their students' lives and education.
The community service requirement is a lot to take on as a first-year student. I am in favor of having community service be a part of my college experience, but using it as a requirement lessens the impact on the student. Service is supposed to come from the heart, and overloading students with it makes it less meaningful.
I like the professors and how caring they are. Everyone will talk to one another and it is one small community. It is super easy to make friends in your classes as well as in the chapel. There are many fun activities that occur every week, keeping you busy.
I do not like some of the rules such as curfew and guests are only allowed to go to your dorm at a certain time. It is more strict than some parents which is what makes these rules difficult.
The most impactful thing about Palm Beach Atlantic University is the Christ-centered community where I am surrounded by other Jesus followers.
The dorm I chose to live in my freshman year consisted of seven other females, and I was not prepared for that type of co-living situation. I wish they would do background surveys and pair you with people that are similar to your style and preferences.
